President Trump holds a mask as he speaks during a tour of the Ford Rawsonville Plant in Ypsilanti, Mich., Thursday.

When he was reportedly asked why he was not wearing a mask at the time of the press interaction, Trump said that the area where they were at was safe because everyone here, him included, had been tested. "And I hope that the voters of MI will remember this when November comes, that he didn't care enough about their safety, he didn't care about their welfare, he didn't respect them enough just to engage in the very simple task, the painless task, the easy task of wearing a mask when he was provided one", she vented.

The Ford company said in a statement that Chairman Bill Ford had "encouraged President Trump to wear a mask when he arrived. I didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it", he said, adding that he also wore goggles.

Surrounded by Ford executives who were wearing masks, Trump told reporters he had put one on earlier in the visit.

Trump wore the navy colored mask with what appeared to be a presidential seal on the left side during a private tour of the facility, where masks are required at all times.

Trump visited Ypsilanti, outside Detroit, to tour a Ford plant that has partly converted to manufacturing ventilators and personal protective equipment (PPE) amid the pandemic caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, a novel coronavirus from Wuhan, China.

"I think I look better in the mask. They knew exactly what the order was and if they permitted anyone, even the President of the United States, to defy that order, I think it has serious health consequences potentially to their workers", said Nessel.

Trump's vow not to close the country again came a day after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The Washington Post there was "no doubt" there would be a second wave of infections. "Voting by mail is wrought with fraud and abuse".

"People say that's a very distinct possibility, it's standard", Trump said when asked about a second wave. Rising floodwaters have displaced thousands of residents near the city of Midland. We've got to stop demonizing one another and really focus on the fact that the common enemy is the virus.

Trump suggested in another tweet that Ford might leave MI if they're held accountable for his actions. "And now it's a natural disaster", Whitmer told CBS News, describing her conversation with Trump.

On Thursday, Donald Trump visited a Ford factory in MI and the whole thing was extremely odd from start to finish-and past finished, actually.
